Shifter™ 2 Tent is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shifter Tent Perfect two man tent for my motorcycle adventures. The two vestibules give you ample room to store all your gear and keep it out of the elements. Easy to pitch in any conditions weather condition and keeps you bone dry in bad weather.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 2 Person Tent for Cyclist An all-in-one tent includes footprint and pole splint. A well designed package with only two poles, self-standing with a nice vestibule. Just what we were looking for. Thanks, Cheers, s. (This review was collected as part of a promotion.)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Shifter for 2 I haven't used this tent yet as it won't stop snowing here, but so far so good. It's roomier then expected which is nice. Love the openness of it. I found it a little difficult to get it all back in the bag at first but I managed to cram it all in after a few tries. I would recommend this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Super Shifter I have yet to take this out into the elements, but I popped up the tent in my living room to familiarize myself with it and the features are quite awesome. I love the aluminum poles which do not snag anywhere and the rain fly seems really awesome with its shifter capabilities. I can't wait to take this bad boy out!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a fantastic tent I absolutely love this tent. It comfortably fits my sleeping pad and duffle bag with plenty of room to spare. If two of us had to sleep in here there would be plenty of space and we'd keep our bags out in one of the spacious vestibules. The 4 internal pockets are perfectly placed and the included gear loft and footprint work great. I also love how you can customize the setup. It's been raining pretty hard for a few days now, but the inside of my tent and I are totally dry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Tent This is the third MH tent I have owned since 2011. I bicycle tour, and this tent is easy to setup and as watertight as advertised.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid tent The tent comfortably fits two 6' or less people, super functional. Handy vestibules as well, and very easy to set up. Only reason I gave it 4 out of 5 stars is it's a bit on the larger side to throw on a pack for a 4+ mile hiking trip, if you have other gear to add to the pack as well (i.e., sleeping mat, etc).

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A little small if you are on the taller side I love this tent and have used it already, but it is a little small for me as I am 6 foot 2 and I barely fit in as far as length goes. My girlfriend fits perfect and the width is perfect, it is just the length. If you are 6 foot tall or shorter, this is the perfect tent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Packing light for two Great tent for backpacking. The storage area was perfect for keeping our gear out of the weather. The fit was perfect for the two of us.
